In the summer of 2012, our members started hearing rumours that Treasury Board was planning to start paying employees “pay in arrears”. This means that instead of being paid in real time, you would be paid for the two preceding weeks. Eventually, when you leave your employment, you will be paid the final two weeks owing to you.

We have had many inquiries from PSAC members about the new Family Day holiday in BC, which is coming up in February. Federal public sector collective agreements provide for 11 designated paid holidays, including a day in the opinion of the employer to be a provincial or civic holiday.
